It was very calm and we were very sure. As a tourist, at least at the reception they should have wifi.

My husband and I spent two wonderful nights in the longdarval accommodation. The Golden Gate National Park is really worth the visit! Such beautiful scenery which is enjoyed most by staying in the park. The accommodation is great for what you pay and has everything you need.
